    Question Big dish adjustment Help?????

    Hi Everybody,
    I need help to finish adjust on a 10' dish. I'm trying to get the signal of StarOne C2, from a dish installed on Deerfield Beach,FL. I need to know the Screw adjust and the Universal LNB alignment. It has some scale on it, to hold on focus, but i don't know what is the correct distance. I'm getting a very weak signal on satellite finder. Any help will be very appreciated. thanks

    That bird is pointed at South America. I definitely can't see it in Montana. I'm thinking Florida may be well out of the footprint also. You may want to see if you can find a footprint map and check into this.

    Looks like the U.S. is way out of the footprint.

    There is some 'spillage' of C2 into the Caribbean region. (That

    doesn't show) If your in southern FL, you might get something on C2, but by northern FL chances are slim. Georgia? nothing.
    Suggest you use 78W or 83W to set your elevation to start with.

    A guide, for this, I put together http://www.satelliteguys.us/threads/222234-BUD-manual
    Skew, with the dish on a polar mount would be zero. What 's the model # of the lnbf? Some require their mark at 3:00, some at 12:00.

    I am just north of you in Jensen Beach. I cannot get Star One C2 at 70w here at all on my 10 footer. Star One C1 at 65 w is fine.
